Prescription Safety Glasses manufactures prescription safety eyewear.

The choice of lens material depends on the risk assessment associated with the hazards and work practices undertaken. There are two main types of lens material suitable for safety eyewear.

Polycarbonate lenses are the industrial safety standard material. They are lightweight and have a tough anti-scratch coating. This is claimed to be the only lens material to meet the medium impact requirements of the proposed AS/NZs 1337.2.

Lightweight CR39 lenses offer all day wearability and have a durable hard-finish coating. CR39 satisfies the requirements of low impact in the proposed AS/NZs 1337.2 at 2.5 mm minimum thickness. These lenses are heavier than polycarbonate, however solvents affect CR39 less. The typical application for these lenses is in a paint shop or chemical industry where impact resistance is less critical.
